Remeron + SSRI or Reboxetine

Posted by Jackd on August 23, 2002, at 1:08:12

Has anyone had success with this combo? I have had so much success with Remeron, I want it to be a lasting effect. I'm sure my mood disorder diagnosis is right on, but I feel as though just maybe with the right sidekick Remeron could work indefinitely. Sigh.... I just can't accept that with every AD I'm doomed to experience only momentary relief.

15 mg of Remeron and 10 mg of Celexa
worked well for me. The remeron combatted
many of the SSRI's side effects.

Be careful about combining Remeron with Effexor
This can be really powerful

Iv used remeron, zoloft, desipramine, which is a great combo, but wieght gain was a problem. I now take serqouel 50mg, zoloft 50mg and desipramine 25mg, and xanax as needed. THis is the best combo ever. EVER!!!!

I would urge anyone to be very cautious about combining meds, due to my own experience of combining Remeron and Effexor, which was the biggest mistake of my life.

At risk of sounding like a Nardil freak -

Many weak drugs combined usually give weak result...

Action Jackson,

I think you are really trying to help people be more like you in suggesting others to overcome their anxiety by trying Nardil. You appear to have such a great benefit from it that you suggest it to others. But if you keep using caps to tag your subject lines with, this may have a reverse effect in making people think Nardil is closely linked to Shift Key Comupulsion-- a disabling illness...

Also, pardon me for asking, but aren't you the person who runs that web site telling people benzos aren't addictive "if you are anxious"? That's just silly.

Hi Utopizen -

> I think you are really trying to help people be more like you in suggesting others to overcome their anxiety by trying Nardil.

Mostly I suggest Nardil for significant Social Phobia or atypical depression - but yes - I do tend to suggest it a lot here - seems like so many people are treatment resistant here and struggling to find something helpful...

But if you keep using caps to tag your subject lines with, this may have a reverse effect in making people think Nardil is closely linked to Shift Key Comupulsion-- a disabling illness...

:) Point taken!

> Also, pardon me for asking, but aren't you the person who runs that web site telling people benzos aren't addictive "if you are anxious"? That's just silly.

I do have the website - I comment that benzodianzepines are rarely "addictive" in people with legitimate anxiety disorder and without drug abuse problems - as opposed to tolerant - in other words tolerance does occur but addition (abuse in taking benzo's in a self-destructive way) - is rare. ie; these people usually use them responsibly in a self-helping way.

Also on withdrawal symptoms (tolerance) - is not usually too hard for pure Social Phobia to taper off - but for Generalized Anxiety - that group tends to have much more difficulty tapering off especially at the low doses or after long time use...
